I Forgot That I'm Not a Good Judge of Funny

So, when I arrived home and showed my husband the comic posted below, instead of hearing the chuckle I expected, I received a blank stare. Also, a reminder that I'm a nerd. Apparently, many things that I think are "clever" are actually considered nerdy or not funny by most people. Today was exceedingly long and stressful, so I must have had a momentary lapse of judgment when I posted the comic and thought it would be well-received.

In light of today's circumstances, I feel that I should take the opportunity to warn you that if I tell you something is funny, or if I recommend a movie and say that it is excellent ... be warned. Unless you're already pretty sure that our tastes in things are similar, you can pretty much expect to be bored or disappointed. Please don't ever feel the need to politely agree that something was hilarious.

Not gonna lie! The comic also received a blank stare from me! :) I'm glad I wasn't the only one!!

I felt like the one where Joey buys the encyclopedias b/c they do flashbacks to when everyone else has intelligent conversations and Joey never understands what's going on. The funny thing is, they don't ever have intelligent conversations except in that one, but whatever...
